We found this place by chance our first night in Chinon. Amazing food and cute atmosphere! Foie is insane, scallops and duck are amazing, dessert is unique and great flavors! All items are such high quality and fresh, with the best flavors! We loved it so much, we went back the second night of our trip. Had mostly the same items, but some new, and all excellent! This is definitely an amazing find and highly recommended! The owners are so talented and their operation is very impressive!!

We ate here in April, just after Easter, so hardly the tourist season in full swing. However, the restaurant was full and people were being turned away - always a good sign.

My husband enjoyed the foie gras and the St Jacques (perhaps a sauce may have added to the dish), whilst I had the asparagus with roasted garlic and a lovely sauce (mmm!) followed by the pork belly, very tender, also in a good sauce and served with a carrot terrine. Desserts were good. Good local wine list.

The service was great. All was very good and we will return.

We chanced upon this small restaurant and liked the look of the set menu, both content and price. As it opened we asked for a reservation and as it happened that was luck as it was full from 7.30 and turning people away. A delightful one sitting meal served at a sedate pace, all delicious and reasonably priced. I totally recommend it and will return when next in Chinon.

Having always been told never to trust a thin chef, that myth was exploded after our visit to this chic and neat gastro hideaway in Chinon. He is "Front of House" she is "Dans le Cusine"! Just how the two of them manage to keep it all together, with service accurate and efficient is scarcely believable! I had house=made Foie Gras and then Poisson du Jour. Something un-pronounceable but delicious! Others had delicious mushroom soup, black tomato salad with a savoury galette, followed by a delicious pork dish. Desserts were equally moorish!
Good range of wines. No wonder she is so slender! The place was almost full - yet all was calm in the kitchen.

We would certainly revisit if in the region.

We know most of the restaurants in Chinon as we live full-time in France, and close by. La Part des Anges stands out for quality, creativity and affordability. It's a gem. Quite small, but like the food, the restaurant is perfectly formed, with some space upstairs as well as downstairs, and in the summer, a few tables outside. It's run by a husband and wife team. She's the chef and he does an equally great job at front of house. We've been there a few times now and each time, the experience is bang on the mark. Good wine list. Consequently it's one of our favourite places. We're lucky to be able to go whenever we like - and do. But for any holidaymakers coming to Chinon, please put La Part des Anges on your hit list. You'll have a great time. Reservation advised. 02 47 93 99 93
